WE CANNOT DO WHAT WE DO ALONE.

We value our partnerships. They are critical to ensuring that we reach every child, everywhere.
And the landscape of partnerships is changing. More and more, we foster partnerships that help developing countries
swap important information and expertise. We’re also working more with the private sector.

 

 



UNICEF NATIONAL COMMITTEES
played a vital role in raising funds and advocating
for the rights of children, while the tireless efforts of
UNICEF’s celebrity supporters –
OUR GOODWILL
AMBASSADORS

– helped keep children’s issues prominent in traditional and
social media. Globally, we are privileged to work with 32 Goodwill
Ambassadors, and more than 200 Ambassadors at the national
and regional level.

 

 




UNICEF convened the second
SANITATION AND
WATER FOR ALL

High-Level Meeting at the
WORLD BANK IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
Thirty-five countries committed to better sanitation for more than
300 million people and clean drinking water for more than 220
million by 2015.

 

 


Several national committees worked with UNICEF to advocate for
a European Union Recommendation on Child Poverty. This takes
a broad view of child poverty and aims to ensure that poor
children have a better life and a say in issues that affect them.
In June 2012, UNICEF joined the Governments of Ethiopia, India
and the United States of America to launch
COMMITTING TO CHILD SURVIVAL:
A PROMISE
RENEWED,

a global movement with the ambitious, yet achievable,
goal of ending preventable child deaths.

 

 




By the end of 2012,
168 GOVERNMENTS
and more than
400 CIVIL SOCIETY AND
FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS

had joined the movement.

 

 

 

POLICY ADVOCACY AND PARTNERSHIPS
ARE AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO.

They’re essential to our work with governments, lawmakers, the media, civil society and international organizations.
UNICEF is committed to ensuring that our partners can meet their obligations to children. To do that, we need to know where
the most pressing needs are. So we collect, analyse and share data. UNICEF strengthens the capacity of partners to design
and implement policies and legislation and advises them on budgets that prioritize the needs of children and their families.
